Ionic foot detoxification, also known as ionic foot bath or ionic foot spa, is a type of alternative therapy that involves soaking your feet in a warm water bath with a small electric current passing through it. The therapy draws out toxins and impurities from the body through the feet.
During an ionic foot detox, you place your feet in a foot bath filled with warm water. A device called an ionizer is then placed in the water, which produces an electric current that creates positively charged ions. The positively charged ions attract and neutralize negatively charged toxins and impurities in the body, drawing them out through the feet and into the water.
The color of the water in the foot bath is an indication of the toxins and impurities being released from the body. The water may turn brown, black, or even orange, which indicates the types of toxins being removed from your body.
